You’re right, I don’t know many people with three-stones rings in my area. I do love the look of them when they are 3 halos. So vintage!! Or when the center stone is much larger and the two side stones are more of an accent on the shank. 

 

Anyhow, I went for a double halo on a plain platinum shank πŸ™‚

@Timshel:  I love 3 stone e-rings! They are so unique and I love what they represent. I was torn between a solitaire/solitaire with halo and a 3 stone as well. Decided to go with 3 stone and don’t regret it at all. Everybody else around me is getting married as well and most of them have solitaires. 

(sorry for the bad pic but its the best i have on this computer!)

I don’t think you can go wrong with either one, both are a matter of taste.  For example, here’s a 3 stone OEC moissanite ring I think is spectacular:

I ended up going with a plain shank halo:

I love my ring, but halos definitely need to be babied a bit more than other styles due to the pave.  A 3 stone would be lower maintenance.  Just pick which one you love, not which one is more popular.

@Timshel:  So, I replied very quickly last night because it was past my bed time, lol, but I was torn between my 3 stone ring and a 6 prong round solitaire. Both are gorgeous. The deciding factors were:

a) you can walk into any high street jewellery store and buy a 6 prong round. Mine is more unique.

b) the solitaire sat up too high for me – I’m left-handed so that was important.

c) Mine was the only ring my Fiance said “wow” to.

d) I preferred the look with a wedding band – I like how the eye is already drawn across the finger with a 3 stone ring so it seemed to “go” more with the plain band I tried with them.

 

Both rings you like are lovely and I don’t think you can go wrong, so go with your instinct. There are a few days I wish I had a solitaire, but most of the time I really really love my ring.

I was very keen on 3 stone rings, but they didn’t look right on my size 4 fingers.

We chose a solitaire & I adore it. Sorry for the massive pic…

@Timshel:  It’s really about what you like and what you prefer. I personally didn’t want a 3-stone ring. Fiance tried to convince me to get one but my heart wanted a solitaire! And that’s what I got. I love my solitaire.

Thank you all very much! πŸ™‚ I’m in love with my set. My DH and I designed both of the rings together, and they’re everything I could have ever wanted. The diamonds are also heirloom diamonds from his deceased grandmother.

Uh, I’ve never heard of a religious (Christian) link to 3-stone rings. I’m a Pagan, so I wouldn’t have picked a 3-stone ring because of that. I love my 3-stone ring, and I’m fairly young (24). I waited almost 4 years for him to propose, and I like the symbolism of past, present, and future. πŸ™‚

Mine is a hybrid. Looking at it from the top, it’s a 3 stone. But looking at it from the side (profile view) it looks like a tiffany-style solitaire. It was the best of both worlds for me- more finger coverage with classic elements that fit my personal style.
